This is a "just for jun" photo contest with great first place prizes each time we set it up. It will be judged only by folks that visit this website to vote. Anyone and everyone may vote once a day. So, get the word out to all your friends and to your family members. Tell them to come vote once daily. A vote can only be submitted once in a 24 hour time period from any ip address.
The contest runs from the first of the chosen month til the last day of that month at midnight, computer time....that's 12:00 midnight where our computer sever is located. We have been know to switch servers, so vote early to be safe.
Photos of the species of bird we ask for, at that time, only. Please, no other pets or people in the photos. Just birds. Photos with anything living (other then plants) will not be eligible for the contest.
One photo per person per month.
Please only use your photo once for our contest. You may send in a different shot of the same bird, but not the same photo more then once.
You must register to participate. By registering we will have your snail mail address to mail you your prize at the end of the photo contest. If we do not have your full name and snail mail address we will not be able to mail you your prizes if you win. We do not contact you for further information upon winning. We do not sell or give this list to anyone. We use this registration for sales and so that our members can upload their photos to the site. Later, when new products become available I may/will also email you to let you be one of the first to see what is new.
Photos must be approx. 430 x 300 pixels. Large photos will not upload unto the site.
Photos must be submitted to the site the month prior to the contest month. In other words, if you have a photo for February it must be to us by January 31 at 8 pm. Late photos will not get posted.
If it ever comes to a last word or a decision made on these contests. The Marna's Menagerie team will have that authority. For instance, if there were what appears in percentage as a tie (but actual votes are different amounts), if prizes needed to be changed for some unknown reason, if a person that won did so dishonestly and such.
How Do I Enter A Photo?
I can't submit this photo for you from my account, but I think it is pretty easy for you to do. First, just register at this site. See Menu. You will need to pick a username and a password, and enter your name and email address. Then you will get an email at that email address that has a link to verify your email address was entered correctly (stops anonymous posting of emails).
Once you have done that, you can click on My Photo Album and upload the picture. When you upload the picture, a line of text will show beneath the photo that basically says "You have not entered a photo to the coming photo contest. Click here to enter this one!". Once you click that, you are "in".
JULY GOOSE PHOTO CONTEST
This is our first ever GOOSE PHOTO CONTEST! The winner will receive the Goose Diaper Holder seen here in the photo. This cute little Santa Inspired Goose Diaper Holder also comes with the Santa Hat, and Christmas Print Cloth Goose Diaper Holder Liners, also seen in the photo here.
This Goose Diaper Holder will fit most geese that are approx. (sorry, no substitutes) It is made with polar fleece, cotton blend fabrics, waterproof lining in both the Goose Diaper Holder as well as each of the Cloth Liners. The liners velcro into the diaper holder and can be used with or without a disposable liner. Our liners are made to be lined with folded newspaper, for easy break down in the environment, but you could also line with a sanitary napkin or human baby diaper.

AUGUST DUCK PHOTO CONTEST
The winner of this months Photo Contest will receive both items in the photos! Not only will you win the Pirate Duck Diaper Holder Harness Costume with the Matching Hat but also the Duck Earrings for the Duck Lady or Duck Mama to wear with pride to show off their love of ducks!
SEPTEMBER CHICKEN PHOTO CONTEST
Chicken Diaper? CHICKEN DIAPER??!! Yes, it is a Diaper Holder Harness for a Chicken. This cute little Chicken Diaper Holder Harness will fit most standard sized chickens.
Chickens can make good house pets. Chickens can be trained to do tricks and tasks, however, they do not have the muscles in their bodies to be able to be housebroken. So diapers are really necessary. With a chicken wearing a diaper they can sit on your lap or on your couch. A Bantum Chicken was the first animal I ever trained to do tricks. I was in early grade school. So yes, anyone can train their chicken to wear an outfit. It is not a force thing, it is a training. Slow and easy, little by little.
ABOUT THE PRIZES
We hope you like our monthly prizes. All items were designed and made by me....I make all these same type items first for my own birds, so all items have been product tested.
Prizes are described and photo is shown above for each month. What you see is what you get. Sorry, No substitutes, No color change, No different sizes.
Bird Diaper Holders, Clothes, Costumes and Outfits do come in sizes. The prizes are made up to fit the size I chose at that time. All outfits are made for the contest (you will find some of the same outfits for sale in our Online Shop).
The prizes are new and have never been worn or tried on by any other bird.
Prizes will be shipped about a week after the contest closes. We are not rural...we are way further out then that. Sometimes, not too often, the weather does not allow us to get out across the 6.4 miles of dirt/mud/snow covered Road between us and the pavement. Should that happen, your prize *will* go out as soon as possible after the contest closes.
All prizes are new and never used. They are handmade in our non-smoking home. No bird have ever worn, slept on or been around your item.
If you see a prize you would like to own, but did not win one, check our For Sale page. Most, if not all of the items we award for prizes are also for sale in our on line shop. If you see something you would like to have among our prizes but do not see it on our sales page, please send an email and ask. We do ship our products all over the world.
